Here is the latest report to inform you of what has been going on PrestaShop translation project on Crowdin lately (which means this last March).

Updated translations

You’ve been quite a few to report a problem when fetching the language packs: it doesn’t include the latest translations made on Crowdin.

Yes, unfortunately, we’re (still) having issues with our synchronization system. The language packs don’t include the most recent translations from Crowdin, at the moment. We’re currently working on this, as we know it’s important for a lot of merchants. Hopefully, by the end of the month the language packs will be updated to include the most recent translations on Crowdin.

Now let’s get back to our Crowdin project, and the full report of its activity in March:

A few stats

  • 78 contributors joined the project this month, for a total of 2,697 members at the end of March. Welcome to them!
  • 44 members were active on the project this month.
  • A total of 103,856 words have been translated (+138%!) and 60,155 validated.
  • All this in 28 different languages.

That’s quite some work, thank you!

We’re happy to welcome Romanian in this category! A little bit of work and these languages can be 100% translated and validated too! If you feel like you want to help, join the project!

March 2016 best translation progress

Languages that need (more) proofreaders

A translated string will not be available in PrestaShop as long as it is not validated. For this reason, it’s important we should keep a good level of validated strings vs. translated strings, to make sure everyone benefits from the latest translations!

This month also brought a good news as Slovak has been fully approved! We’re down to 3 languages that require in priority some proofreading at the end of March:

  • Turkish (96% translated vs 0% validated)
  • Ukrainian (99% vs 53%)
  • Galician (49% vs 11%)

If you haven’t joined us on Crowdin yet, it’s never too late!

If you want to gather your fellow translators to work towards a better harmonization, start a glossary, or anything else, do let us know: we’ll include a word about it in the next monthly report.
